Re: Is the Haynesworth 'doing the worm' outcry overblown or legit?
No coach should accept a lack of effort, and yet you're praising him for that play? That would absolutely be terrible coaching. That's setting a terrible example for other players and would encourage players to half-ass it on the field. You get on someone for being lazy on a play? They just respond with how you praised someone else for taking a nap on the field.
Vick is about as effective out of the pocket as he is in it (if not moreso). Orakpo was the one who caused Vick to leave the pocket anyway. Carter would have gotten a hit on Vick if not for Haynesworth. Haynesworth didn't end up posing a threat on that play. Basically, all he did was occupy 2 OL for a bit, then took a nap allowing 1 of those OL to go pick up Carter so he didn't get to Vick, and it also opened up passing lanes for Vick and gave him an area of the field that he could have used to run.
